Join us for our 6th annual invasive species eradication trip. This is a unique opportunity for people to get actively involved with river restoration while experiencing a day of whitewater rafting at a great price! This event is brought to you by the River Exchange, with the generous support of River Dancers Rafting and Kayaking Co., who will provide all rafting gear, and the U.S. Forest Service, who will provide all tools needed for the bank restoration work.

The annual Raft and Restore event is typically conducted on the Upper Sacramento River, but because of predicted low flows due to a lack of snow melt, this year's event will benefit a Class 2 stretch of the Upper Klamath River, starting at the Tree of Heaven Campground in north Siskiyou County.

Invasive plant species such as puncture vine and Marlahan mustard will be addressed on this trip, with the help of the U.S. Forest Service. All plant removal tools and rafting equipment will be provided; all we need are community members who love rafting and value keeping our rivers healthy!

Registration is required to participate. For more information or to register, contact River Dancers, or call The River Exchange at (530) 235-2012.
